Back when Shonda Rhimes and Katherine Heigl were on good terms, the former gave the latter some decent material to work with on Grey's Anatomy. Izzie planned for a perfect Thanksgiving, but nobody wanted to help her out ... until Burke stepped in. Then, just when it looked like nobody would actually join them for dinner, the cavalry arrived. We're sure Shonda would rewrite that scene very differently nowadays.
Katherine Heigl won an emmy for her work as Izzie in 2007, but the following year, the actress withdrew her name from consideration. The reason? <P><P>"I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination…”<P><P> Series creator Shonda Rhimes was said to be mad, and Izzie was phased out without so much as a conclusion.
